Pearl is a simple character yet complex. Simple in the fact that she appears to be and is a good wife and mother, as well as, a working class, Christian woman. Her faith overshadows her fears, gives her a confidence that won’t allow her to back down when she confronts injustice, and shields her inadequacies, personal desires, and secrets. She is complex because she is hurting and has only God to whom she is willing to share the depths of her secrets that she is committed to take with her to the grave.

Project Details

Short Synopsis:  Roll On! is a musical about family and faith, and what happens when trust is lost or broken. It tells the story of a teenage boy who wants to become pastor of his family’s church, but life’s cares and family secrets choke his goal. Along the way, he meets and falls in love with the woman of his childhood dreams, recalls that true love forgives, and learns that forgiveness empowers, enabling him to move on and fulfill his destiny. While there are many references to the Gospel, Roll On! is not didactic but a play that triumphantly reveals many heartfelt, universal themes. With no “DIVAS” written into the script, it is an ensemble piece in which each character’s arc yields importance to the story. The play spans a total of 25 years. Actors must convincingly play a broad range of ages. Post reading plans and future opportunities for the cast include a touring show to be initiated in November, following the October 2022 DMV opening launch.
